Left nav questions

Hi

I'm having trouble setting up my left navigation categories on all of the pages. Right now I have navigation set up on all pages (but can't seem to get it to show up properly on the index.php page), but am not sure how I would go about matching all of the categories that are under the products drop down on the top nav. and also put it on the index page. Is there a tutorial or something similar to walk me thru the process? I'm kind of a php newbie but know my way around html/css.

Here is the link: index.php

Any help would be greatly appreciated

You would want to look at our CSS Menu Writer product and the tutorials that come with it? Have you looked at those yet? that is what we used to create the menus. We also have a general tutorial on menus and css in general that might help.

Does CSS Menu Writer come with PowerStore? I see the CSSMenuWriter folders and the files, but not the extension for it.
On another note, would I need to create another "left nav" menu to show all of the categories from the top nav? That's really what I want to do, not add everything form the top nav, just the categories and clickable links for each.

No, we used the SuperSuite to create the PowerStore, so if you own the extensions it is easier to update. PowerStore does not include all of the tools we used to create it.

To edit the menu by hand you can open up the associated menu include file and css file. They should be relatively easy to follow if you are familiar with php.

OK, got it.
Unfortunately, I'm not that familiar with php, so it's kind of a challenge to figure it out.
I've attached a gif of what I'm trying to recreate, which I can do using css & whatnot, but my question is, how would I get each category to got to the proper link (e.g. Abstract, Asian, etc.). I also want to say thanks & keep up the great work! This has saved me days of trying to figure out a commerce site!

The links are controlled by the menu.php include file. You will see the recordsets and code to create them.
